“Sonny Bono from the Outrageous Road Show” is my latest singing piece which turns out to be, strangely enough, the most accessible of my work. It gives people hope or on the other hand, takes away their excuses. If I, who can’t talk, can sing tacky, emotional message songs of the ‘60’s – sometimes to taped music, sometimes backed up by a live rock band, in nightclubs in L.A. and S.F. – then anybody can do what they want!

The A.S.U.C. Presents = Recycled Dreams The second year of the performance series by Frank Moore
Every other Tuesday, from 7 to 9 p.m., Mr. Moore turns a classroom (125 Dwinelle) on the U.C. Berkeley campus into a bubble of reality in which even grown-ups can let go of their silly limits and play like kids. This magic is called forth by combining Mr. Moore’s live performance and video art with the works of other artists, dancers, musicians, actors and designers.
